my rescue - 9 months on

just thought id put some updated photos up for those of you who remember the little qh colt that came to me all skinny and neglected. For those of you who don't, ill give you the short story :) got a little qh colt for free as he was pretty neglected. I have to admit I thought he was an ugly little thing but he was registered and had good lines so I figured why not :)

Arizona january 09




^^ he looked so goofy lol all legs and head on a long skinny neck hehehehe





Arizona october 09 (after his man 'bits' have finally kicked in )






^^^he doesnt usually stand so weird. Something had just scared the living daylights out of him :)











^^^that pic was taken only moments before he bit me for the first time ever...quite possibly the last time ever as well. I told him off good and proper lol

I have no more room for pics so ill post the most recent ones in another post

*gasp!* ARE YOU BACK WITH US JAZZY??

What a transformation!! You should be SO proud of yourself!! He looks fantastic - you have an eye for the beauties when they're in rough shape. Yay to you!!!




& I really really really hate to nit-pick, but the halter is just a tad low ;) just tying the knot a little tighter would fix that up no problem!!

WooHoo, welcome back Jazzy. He certainly has filled out and is growing beautifully. Are you sure that he is 100% QH? His legs are pretty hairy for any yearling I have ever seen, but that may just be him.

You certainly can pick them and from the looks of him, he should be one smooth riding son of a gun when he is old enough to start riding.

I am so glad you're back. YAY!!!!

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

hehehehe yes im back with ya :) its been a rough year for me but I now have a job that gives me nearly the whole day to myself. I have to start at 5am (stables) but im home by 10am so I've got more time for the horses. I have 8 horses now..i know I know lol one is for sale and the other is just here cause her owner had nowhere for her. Theres still richards 2 and I have 4. I have a new little rescue going now arizona is doing fine. This one should be a little stunner as well. I hope :) im going to post a thread for him when im done with this one...if I have time...maybe ill do it later...i dunno lol

Ok so heres some pics I took just a few days ago


Trying to look all pretty for the little filly :)











So theres what I call my 'ugly duckling' lol he's going off to the breaker soon. Very excited

He's gorgeous!

"Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

aaaw its nice to be missed :)

He's old enough to be broken now. He's 4 in january. He was 3 when I got him. He was just small and had no boy bits cause he was so malnourished. He's going to the breaker in january. Im heading down the western path now and he is going to be broken and trained as a reiner. He has a reining and halter horse line. Im hoping he gets the reining side of it rather than the halter side.

He's definitely 100% qh. I have his papers and stuff. He didnt look like a quarter horse at all when I got him so it doesnt surprise me if something else doesnt fit right yet

Oh, my bad. I was thinking he was just a yearling or maybe a short 2 year old. I guess it was that first pic that threw me off, he looked incredibly young in that one.

Wow, in that case, I can't wait for pix of him in training.
